Subject: As Does the End of the War
Holiday newsreel from 1945 showing Christmas tree harvesting, kids admiring toys, and Santa talking to kids. This should bring back memories for early baby boomers. Also included in the newsreels are stories about General Eisenhower taking over as army chief of staff, a Japanese-American family accepting a medal for a fallen war hero, Archbishop Spellman kicking off a canned-food drive for Europes starving children, and newly-designed fighter planes being displayed and raced by the air force. A real blast from the past for the post-war period.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
